Brent Musburger, Jesse Palmer and Kaylee Hartung of the SEC Network are back in Lexington for Saturday’s 7:30 p.m. Kentucky-Georgia kickoff at Commonwealth Stadium.

Ex-UK quarterback Patrick Towles, now the starter at Boston College, gets another crack at Louisville when BC plays host to the Cardinals at noon on ESPN2.

The day’s big game happens in Baton Rouge where No. 15 LSU plays No. 1-ranked Alabama. CBS has the 8 p.m. telecast with Verne Lundquist, Gary Danielson and Allie LaForce. It’s the nightcap of a CBS/SEC doubleheader in which Florida plays at Arkansas at 3:30 p.m. Brad Nessler, who replaces the retiring Lundquist next season, will work the Florida-Arkansas game along with Aaron Taylor.
